Globalization, efficiency, and competition are affecting all industries, including the industrial world where innovations continue to shape industrial and process control equipment and machinery to optimize production and improve safety and reliability. This is being implemented while taking into consideration the ever evolving safety regulations.
Whether you are a manufacturer, a seller, or a user of industrial and process control equipment, you should be aware that you need to comply with national and international safety codes and standards so as to mitigate business risks.
Some of these standards that your equipment must comply with are:
- ANSI/UL 508 Electric Industrial Control Equipment
- UL 508A Industrial Control Panels
- NFPA 79 Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery
- UL 1740 Industrial Robots and Robotic Equipment
- UL 698A Industrial Control Panels Relating to Hazardous (classified) Locations
- CSA C22.2 No. 14 Industrial Control Equipment
- IEC/EN 60204 Machinery Safety
